Google Play Music All Access is a new monthly music subscription service that lets you listen to millions of songs across your devices. You can create a radio station from any song or artist you love, browse recommendations from our expert music team or explore by genre. And when millions of songs just aren't enough, Google Play Music lets you combine our collection with your own collection. You can store 20,000 songs for free in the cloud and listen to them alongside the All Access catalog.
Google Play Music's All Access promises "millions of songs" (but none by The Crucifucks) runs $9.99 a month, but if you sign up before June 30 you get a discounted rate of $7.99 a month. You can try it for a month for free. There's a Pandora-like radio too, but no free-with-ads version like Spotify, however.

It is absolutely fucking horrible. I'm not trolling, I encourage you to try it for yourself and see how terrible it is.

is there really any reason to pay for any form of digital music? seriously!!! especially if you think ZZ Top has anything to do with the Crucifuks.

People with simple, vanilla music tastes use spotlfy. It's perfect for Facebook obsessed late-20-somethings who have their post-college first job. This google service is for 30-something's who have given up on music entirely and are happy to hear a lot of Postal Service remixes.

4:21 so what you're trying to say is that people with complex tastes in music like what? Rdio? The smell of their own farts?

Spotify sounds like shit to me. I'm still happy downloading and buying vinyl. If it sounds great, being able to hear 20,000 of my own songs anywhere plus whatever crap they got could be tempting.

All these streaming services suck. It's like a Time Warner Cable subscription - Here's a bunch of shit you don't want and a few that you might want, all in terrible quality.

These streaming services are paying artists nothing.

Streaming music is all disposable crap.
Plus google is a global zeitgeist hellbent on world domination in a way that makes 1984 feel like 1784. Boycott that crap and support artists with buying Vinyl!

support artists by seeing them on tour... buying merch and telling your friends. buy some vinyl if you get it direct from the band not off of Amazon.com like 5:02 does with his moms credit card or college loan money.

No need for this streaming nonsense.

Pretty down with Rdio. Also pretty down with the way my farts smell.

^+1 on the GReader tip:( Been previewing Rdio for 2 weeks, has some content Spotify doesn't, but Spotify more consistent (load times and catalog), will try G-access, cloud storage def a bonus)

I'd be willing to pay half this to increase my Google Music storage limit.
